Future LHS Families,

I hope that you and your families enjoying the end of your school year and graduation from junior high!  We look forward to having you at Lutheran High next fall.

We believe that activities play a vital role in the education of our students at LHS.  While participating in sports, clubs, or one of our activities this year, we believe your student will develop their bodies, learn physical and mental discipline, to operate as a member of a team, acquire self-motivation and self-esteem, and learn to compete with dignity.  These attributes will be vital to their success in life beyond school.

Our coaches, directors and mentors are focused on instilling good values and building character via their activities, the classroom, and the hallways.  We want to see our students reach their potential.  Because of this, we feel it is imperative that you understand our philosophy:  Winning is an Attitude!  Working to win is an attitude that must be present in all aspects of our students lives:  as Christians who glorify God with all of their actions, as athletes who strive to play their best, as students who are successful in the classroom, and as teammates who place the team above themselves.

Below, you will find contact information for our staff.  As we enter the summer months, our teams and activities will begin to have open gyms, practices, and camps to prepare for the 2016 – 2017 school year.   on the comprehensive summer schedule to download a summer schedule for your convenience.  You are encouraged to contact them for specific information.
